One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
